[ISEA95] Artist Statement: Tamàs Waliczky — The Way

Artist Statement

A computer animation combined with live video, it depicts three runners followed by a camera down a foggy street in a small German village. To virtualize it, the author has moved the vanishing point to the closest possible position next to the viewpoint. The further the object is from the viewer, the larger it appears and vice versa. You can notice this effect on the runners too. Their size is the same, a reference point on this inverted image.
